Deuteronomy 30:19 NIV

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live“


The ancient covenants were administered by observation and witnessing of various parties both spiritual and physical, thus the use of the words ‘heavens and earth’. For instance, the assembly of elders of the tribes and all officials hear speech and the heavens and the earth to testify (Deuteronomy 31:28). God speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets (Psalms 50:1). Also, Isaiah 1:2 discloses “hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth! For the Lord has spoken: “I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me.“ Our God has given us His word, which acts a weighing scale that results to either life or death. Those who hear His voice and follow Him find life, but those who rebel against God result in death. Every matter is established by the testimony of two or three witnesses (2 Corinthians 13:1), thus we are reminded to love the Lord our God, obey His voice, cling to Him, for He is our life and the length of our days, that we may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Since the word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our paths, we are called to hear and do the word of God. Jesus is the Word of God and the way of life, He is calling us to hear His voice and to follow Him, and we will have abundant life.


Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for the gift of life. We praise You for You have given us life in abundance through Your death and resurrection. We appreciate You for You have blessed us and saved us from the snares and shadows of death. We shall not die but live to declare Your goodness Oh Lord. We shall not die before our time but we shall live long on earth to serve our purposes and afterwards come to be with You loving Savior. Because of Your great love we are not consumed Your compassion never fails, for You are always with us and in us, precious Holy Spirit. Thank You for the gift of salvation. May You grant the gift of salvation to our family members, friends, communities, nation and all the nations of the world. May You teach us to always do Your will dear Lord Jesus. May You fill our hearts with love for You and our neighbors as ourselves. All glory and honor belongs to You dear Jesus now and forever. Amen
